Career Timeline

In 1991, I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in justice studies.

In 1992, I entered the U.S. Air Force as a second lieutenant intelligence officer. I served for seven years and then moved back to Arizona, where I started a security guard and patrol business.

In 2001, I began my service to my local community as a police officer in a medium-sized metropolitan department just outside of Phoenix. I served in this position until 2021.

In 2004, I also started with the Arizona Air National Guard.

In 2008, I graduated with a master's in military operational art and science. I served in the Air Guard until 2021, when I retired with 24 years of total military service as a Lieutenant Colonel.

I decided to use my police experience and went into business offering police equipment and other supplies. In 2010, I started a business called Phantom Spikes under the parent company of End-X Systems®. I assisted in the development of a much-improved line of tire deflation devices called Phantom Spikes.

Since I retired from the police department and the military, I now devote all of my time to managing Phantom Spikes. Day-to-day, I act as General Manager, where I oversee all aspects of the business. I also personally respond to all inquiries about our products.
